Talk Nation Radio: Chase Madar on the Passion of Bradley Manning
Chase Madar discusses his new book "The Passion of Bradley Manning: The Story of the Suspect Behind the Largest Security Breach in U.S. History." Madar is a civil rights attorney. He writes for the London Review of Books, Le Monde diplomatique, the American Conservative, CounterPunch, and TomDispatch. He discusses with host David Swanson the voluminous information that Manning is accused of providing to Wikileaks and to us, and some of the startling insights it gives us into what our supposedly representative government has been up to. The show also looks at the official and public responses to Manning, his mistreatment, his legal status, and the fate of whistleblowers under the Obama administration.
